It's a shame it only ran for one year.
29 August 2006 | by Anysia_CSee all my reviews

Welcome to Paradox: Great speculative science fiction, and it's just too bad it only ran for one year.

I watched this when I was living in the US, when it first came out, and was totally amazed. Some of the ideas and story lines were troublesome, yet thought provoking.

A prison without walls, inmates controlled with implants. Being able to force evolution, sentient computers teaching children to behave like machines. Having multiple clones of yourself for ready organ transplants.

What is science fiction in one age/decade can become science fact. It would be amazing if some of the ideas there become reality. Frighteing too.

Some of the episodes were from stories by SciFi greats, Philip K Dick, Asimov, Clarke.

Are we wise enough not to abuse technology? Have we evolved far enough to not resort to basic instincts? Or Will we be seduced by the technology developed and integrated into our daily lives? Many of these questions are explored, and examined.

The answers, however, are up to you.
